Key Takeaway

Poor, minority kids have a tougher time succeeding due to systems failure in all aspects of education

The harsh reality is that K–12 education in the United States has so far failed to graduate all young people and prepare them for adult success. Large gaps still exist between low-income and minority kids and their richer, white peers in school environment, administration support, teacher quality, academic options, graduation assistance or college preparedness.
